The mechanism of aqueous-phase asymmetric transfer hydrogenation (ATH) of acetophenone (acp) with HCOONa catalyzed by Ru-TsDPEN has been investigated by stoichiometric reactions, NMR probing, kinetic and isotope effect measurements, DFT modeling, and X-ray structure analysis. The chloride [RuCl(TsDPEN)(p-cymene)] (1), hydride [RuH(TsDPEN)(p-cymene)] (3), and the 16-electorn species [Ru(TsDPEN-H)(p-cymene)] (4) were shown to be involved in the aqueous ATH, with 1 being the precatalyst, and 3 as… CONTINUE READING
